Okavango Diamond to conduct another auction next month

21 april 2017
Botswana Government’s wholly-owned Okavango Diamond Company (ODC) is set to conduct yet another rough diamond auction mid-next month with viewing of lots slated from 3 to 12 May.
Its last auction was held in March when it provided 294,553.06 carats for spot auction and 97,577.75 carats for term supply.
Spot supply refers to the number of similar lots offered in the auction while term supply refers to the number of corresponding sale lots supplied through term contracts.
ODC conducts an online auction following customer viewings of the sales lots at their offices in Gaborone.
With access to 15 percent of Debswana's run-of-mine production, ODC was said to be an “important” supplier to the market with sales in the region of $500 million per annum.
